    Primal Pumpkin Pie



    The original recipe by "Jody" didn't require a whole lot of tweaking, other than replacing the artificial sweetener with stevia, a natural healthy no-carb sweetener. I also followed the advice of Linda Sue and added some vanilla extract. I plan to make this the day before Thanksgiving as it needs to fully cool on the counter and then be chilled in the refrigerator before serving. As far as taste goes, it tastes more like pumpkin pie than cheesecake. Either way, it is dense and delicious!

    Adapted by Healthy Living How To


    Prep Time: 10 minutes
    Cook Time: 45 minutes
    Servings: 6

    Ingredients
    • 8 oz. Organic Cream Cheese, Room Temp
    • 5 Large Organic Eggs
    • 1/8 tsp. NuNaturals Pure White Stevia Extract Powder

    • 1 1/2 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice
    • 1 tsp. Cinnamon
    • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract


    Directions

    1. Add all ingredients to medium bowl and mix with electric mixer until smooth (I just dumped it all in my Vitamix).
    2. Pour into a 6x8 glass baking dish lightly sprayed with non-cook spray.
    3. Bake at 350 F for 45 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.

    Enjoy!

    Looks sort of like a crust-less pumpkin cheesecake... But tastes more like pumkin pie? Wow, looks great.

    I think a little shot of bourbon in the whipped cream might be OK!

    Thanks for this, just in time!

    Ohhhh bourbon, didn't think of that. I only have one Isi whipper though, so not kid friendly.

    Wow this looks great! I think I will do a trial run of this before Thanksgiving so maybe I can bring it to share with my family (none of whom are primal/paleo).

    Mmm, this looks awesome. I'm definitely going to have to try this for Thanksgiving.

    Sounds delicious AND easy! I'm going to give this a trial run this weekend with my husband. He has always made the Pumpkin Pies but it was from America's Test Kitchen recipe which called for a cup of candied yams, cup sugar and cup maple syrup — Grok would definitely NOT approve.

    I made this last night with a slight change to the recipe: I replaced the Stevia (which we don't like) with Coconut sugar (my mom bought it, we're trying to use it up). All other ingredients were as specified.

    I let it cool in the fridge overnight and served it this evening. Not everyone who tried it is on the Primal bandwagon, but we all agreed it needed a tad more sweetness and a lot more spices. The consistency was great and no one missed having a crust, but it was too bland for us.

    I'm not giving up on the recipe, in a few nights I'm going to try again with double the spices. Has anyone else tried it? What was your experience?

    I have to agree...needs more spice and more sweetness. But even then...really delicious and it WORKS.

    Kudos to you, Vanessa. Glad to know I can have this for TG now.
